24. A new mattress — like a gel-foam sleeper or memory foam mattress — to ensure you're getting the most comfortable night of rest you can.

amazon.com

It is recommended you replace your mattress every five to ten years, depending on the comfort and support levels it's providing. A mattress that doesn’t sleep well can result in a low-quality sleeping experience and possible discomfort. So assess the state of your mattress — and consider snagging a new one if you feel like it is no longer providing adequate support.

Promising review: "I slept through the night without pain for the first time in several years after buying this gel-foam mattress! I researched for six months and finally decided on this one. My husband and I sleep intertwined, so I needed one firm enough to handle our combined weight in the middle. I am a side sleeper, so I also needed something soft enough to cushion the pressure points on my shoulders and hips. This mattress is firm enough to hold my spine in the proper alignment for side sleeping, but soft enough to cradle my hips and shoulders. I tend to like softer mattresses, so I was worried I couldn't find what we needed. However, this mattress seems perfect so far. The cover is soft, nicely quilted, and seems sturdy." —Melinda Taylor


Get them from Amazon: Gel-foam mattress for $249.95+ (available in seven sizes) and memory foam mattress for $150.17

Promising review: “These units are the best units that I have tried in a mesh network setup. I have a large, 6,800-square-foot home with three levels. But coverage with this system is fantastic! You are able to walk through the house and have your wireless devices link to the system seamlessly. There are tons of features that makes the unit above all the rest.” —Doug Clark 



Get it from Amazon for $299.99+.

26. A copy of Why We Sleep, so you can uncover the secrets of a good night of rest and how that knowledge can positively impact our daytime activities.

amazon.com

Promising review: “Unless you’re a zombie or a vampire, you’re going to want to read this book from cover to cover. Walker will overhaul your entire attitude toward this activity that we all do every day, but probably not enough. What’s at stake? Oh, just heart disease, cancer, and apparently the size of your testicles, if you happen to have any (left). It’s an easy, fun, and engaging read. And if you doze off in the middle of it, Walker won’t mind. He’ll tell you that’s a good thing.” —Steve Casner

Promising review: “I definitely love this clock! We've had ours for five months without problems. I'm able to set the time and alarm times via the touch buttons on the front, below the time. You can also use the upper buttons, but don't have to for everything. The only thing you have to use the upper buttons for, in relation to setting alarms, is to turn an alarm off or on. For us, this isn't a daily event since we usually get up at the same times so no big deal. We live in the grey Seattle area, and the sunshine this thing brings us makes it the best alarm we've owned!” —Mariam G

Promising review: “My wife and I have been using this app and it's perfect for us. It syncs really well between our iPhones with only a few bugs here and there. I would love to see support for 'splitting' up expenses into multiple categories. This would make the app even more user-friendly. That is my only complaint.
